Blackstone - Oh dear! No picture but "X" marks the spot.


I think Jim explained how to post pictures but not being very high tech I've not really got to grips with it - all help welcomed.

Agreed, it is nice to see the real bike with sidecar. When I was in England in 2016 I was looking for a museum as we were out and about in London and Leicester. No luck, maybe next time.
Thanks for showing.
